Want to make food a little tastier? Feel free to add spice. Check out this recipe: The sweet and SPICY flavor of these beauties made for one killer cranberry sauce. If you are not a fan of extreme heat in your foods PLEASE CAREFULLY SEED THE PEPPERS. OK, there’s the disclaimer, now here’s the recipe 🙂



1 tsp coconut oil
1 fresh habanero chili, minced (I left the seeds IN but please adjust to suit your taste)
1 1 lb bag of fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked over
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 water
1/3 cup PURE maple syrup (add more after the dish is done if you want it sweeter)
1 tsp cinnamon or to taste


Add all other ingredients and bring to simmer. Lower heat and simmer until sauce is desired consistency. For me that is about 20 minutes but if you want a lumpier sauce a bit less.Heat coconut oil over med-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add minced habanero and saute until softened, about 1 minute.

Let cool for a bit and taste. Add a bit more syrup if desired.

Enjoy the heat!
